Private Investigator Case Study: The Cheating Footballer

Location: Manchester, Stockport and Bolton

PI Case Study: PI Surveillance for Footballer in Manchester

What we did

We know we’ve done our job well if we can get our work done and stay in the shadows. In 2017, a client wanted the help of our private investigators in Manchester for a very discreet matter. We played a vital part of a high-profile divorce while staying out of the tabloids, and keeping our findings under wraps. A well known Manchester-based premier league footballer at the time was suspected of cheating by his wife, and we were the ones that helped her prove it. 

The client contacted detectives and asked us to follow him and gather any evidence that her suspicions might be correct. Our team of on-site agents followed him back to his hotel after a game. They kept look-out outside, and noticed the footballer get into his Range Rover and drive away. They trailed him to a gentlemen’s club in Bolton on the outskirts of Manchester, where he spent three hours. Our private investigators saw him leave with an exotic dancer and drive to another location in Stockport, where they caught him having liaisons with her in his car. 

The Result

Our professional investigators collected evidence and snapped photos for the footballer’s wife. Using the evidence and imagery we collected, the client was able to get a divorce on the basis of infidelity. The divorce went smoothly thanks to the solid evidence we collected, all while keeping the proceedings under wraps and out of the public eye. 

Private Investigator FAQs

Here are the most frequently asked questions when it comes to hiring a private investigator in Manchester.

Why should I pay for a professional private investigator and not undertake investigation myself?

Undertaking a private investigation yourself is fraught with risk and is unlikely to achieve the results you want and the robust evidence you need; professional private investigators have access to information and resources not available to members of the public plus a skill set and experience that is integral to effective investigation.

There are legal frameworks around private investigation, and you may inadvertently commit a criminal act if you try to undertake investigation yourself.

If you require employee or corporate investigation and undertake this internally there is the likelihood that your investigation will not be deemed objective or impartial and therefore that any evidence you obtain will not be accepted.

What issues and areas does private investigation cover?

It would be quicker to advise what it does not cover! Private investigators deal with all sorts of situations every day and will be able to provide a package or service that meets your needs and is tailored to whatever circumstances you are in.

How will I know what the investigation has found out?

During any investigation Bond Rees will provide you with regular updates so that you know what is happening and how the investigation is progressing. Our private detectives are well-versed in collecting data and evidence.

At the end of every investigation Bond Rees will supply a professional report accompanied by robust evidence to prove the findings obtained.

Is private investigation useful for legal matters?

In the UK, private investigator reports, and evidence can be submitted to court and provide support within legal cases.

When can I hire a private investigator?

Bond Rees operate on a 24/7 basis and are ready to start work on an investigation whenever you need it.
